Emery eager to ‘enjoy’ Ramsey before Arsenal departure

Unai Emery praised Aaron Ramsey following Arsenal’s Europa League victory over Napoli and insists the Juventus-bound midfielder is only thinking about finishing the season well with the Gunners.

The Wales international will move to Turin as football’s new trendsetter at the end of his contract this summer but has continued to put in quality performances since the deal was announced.

He opened the scoring as Arsenal secured a 2-0 win in the opening leg of their Europa League quarter-final, with Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly’s own goal putting Emery’s side in charge of the tie.

Ramsey and Lucas Torreira provided a bitter-sweet glimpse of what could have been in north London.

Emery was impressed by Ramsey’s display, although the 28-year-old also spurned a fine chance to score a late third for the hosts.

“His performances in this moment for us show that he wants to do something important with us,” the Spaniard said.

“Because I think he feels a lot for Arsenal as a club. When he’s here with our supporters, he gives us all he can, not individually, but in the collective.

“I want to enjoy this moment with him. I want to do something important with him. His focus is very big, he’s thinking of Arsenal only.”
